COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mission Beach, the late 1980s. Amid a sea of neon bikinis, Tower 10 marked the spot where two college grads and a 75 year-old master brewer drew up plans for the first local craft brewery in San Diego since Prohibition. Named in honor of our first good idea, Tower 10 IPA is brewed to inspire the next one.

Tower 10 IPA boasts hops from beginning to end, and everywhere in between. We fill the brew kettle to the brim with assertive Chinook hops, giving the beer its intense grapefruit and pine flavors that linger through its dry finish. After fermentation, we dry hop with a blend of Cascade and Centennial hops for a floral citrus aroma. A touch of lightly kilned caramel malts make Tower 10 a well balanced, full flavor IPA.

rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Pours a nice brownish orange with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is malt forward with some grapefruit, pine and citrus. Flavor is malt, caramel, some light but well integrated hop bitterness, citrus. spices, well balanced and easy to drink. Nicely done IPA.

Pyobon (1531) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2010
Draught. Clear copper with slight white head. Subtle but nice floral hop aroma. Medium body and carbonation. Flavour starts with caramel smoothly moving to a decent bitter finish. Nicely balanced, easy drinking IPA.

Dervock (1510) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle - pours hazy gold with a big white head. Lots of flowery, citrus hops, decent amount of stone fruit, almost a vanilla cream to it. Taste is overpowered by a sharp bitterness up front, dominates anything else that is in there. Mouthfeel is creamy.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Pours a clear mid golden yellow. Nose is faint with earthy hops. Taste is watery with moderate pine hops, mild bitterness, and alcohol heat. Meh.

highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2015
San Diego, man. Never did get there. Friends living there for two years - open house, come on and stay! Kids, man. Drag. They had four, we had two. Too many kids, man. Drag. The beer: hazy lemon curd, lasting head. Classic US hop aroma - passionfruit, mango, canned peaches. Rasping bitterness - probably at the upper limit of what my feeble palate can bear in a session ale. Grapefruit rind. Puckering. (330ml bottle from Dan Murphys and may the good Lord damn my eternal soul for shopping there)

drjoeng (1461) - SINGAPORE - AUG 16, 2016
7%ABV.  IPA. Poured out gold. 6ºSRM. Nose is surprisingly beery with a nice refreshing citrus aroma.  Really very inviting. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate is solid malt with soda crackers, unsalted saltines, white toast and water biscuits.   Hops are a bit spicy with brief scallion, then cilantro then a brief spark of citrus peel then the long slide into resin, sap and pine and citrus oils. Finish is medium, bitter and pine-citrus.

3.3
doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Pours clearish orange with a medium size white head and sheet lace. Smells malty sweet and lightly floral hoppy. Might be old. On tap in C’Bad though. Tastes balanced. Sweet malts with some light floral hops and very little bitterness. Its ok. Medium body, ok carbonation.

3.4
Fules (1426) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - NOV 15, 2017
Közepes, örökké tartó hab, félbarna szín. Déligyümölcsös, citrusos illat. Enyhén édeskés, déligyümölcsös, citrusos, kissé fenyős ízek. Lágy, közepesen testes, enyhén szénsavas, közepesen keserű. Kellemes, jól összerakott IPA.

3.8
fkoolen (1403) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2016 Bottle @ cafe Frape, Maastricht. Cloudy light golden, white foamy head that leaves a nice lacing. Light citrus, spruce, resin, grassy hop profile, grainy and sweet malty base, medium dry and bitter finish. Firm body, low-medium carbonation.
